    are all host nations going to be seeded now? Its pretty unfair imo

    Hope we dont get France or Portugal. Not fussed about other teams.

    Woo, go Greece as well. But obviously England are #1.
    They're my 'second' team as I'm part Greek. I remember when they won the Euro Championships all those years ago, I visited Greece in 07 and they were STILL showing highlights and matches from when they won, lol!

    They always are.

    Having the host nation still in the tournament is good for local interest. By seeding the host team they are more likely to stay in it and keep local interest alive.

    In the 2002 World cup, which was co hosted by Japan and Korea, both countries were seeded, leaving only 6 places for other seeded teams.

    Had this but North Korea instead of south.


    South Africa will be drawn with France i think.

    south africa will get the easiest possible draw to try and get them in the second round, they won't though as they are rubbish

    my prediction for england is Portugal, Australia, Cameroon

    but probably will get,

    england
    north korea
    paraguay
    denmark
    then qualify get all excited only to get papped out by spain/germany/brazil in the quarter finals and then go on about a refereeing decision/beckham until the next one when the process will start all over again.
